BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Traffic control will continue on Real Road, between Stockdale Highway and Elcia Drive, through Friday and crews work on a drainage system.

Flagging personnel will stop traffic for up to five minutes between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. each day. Drivers are encouraged to use alternate routes or allow extra time to reach their destinations if they must travel through this area while work is underway.

An around-the-clock closure is planned for Ford Avenue, between Dunlap Street and Morrison Street, from 7 a.m. Thursday through 5 p.m. Friday. The closure is needed to dismantle and remove the large crane used in the construction of the future bridge abutments. North McDonald Way and Stine Road will be open and residents can detour around the closure using Joseph Drive.
